Replied to One To Many Relation In Forms (without JavaScript)

Ok, I understand that this is impractical to implement with pure PHP because it would refresh the page on button click, but is there any library/package that helps me do something like this in laravel?

What I'm trying to do is avoid writing custom JS code that handles button click events and DOM manipulation because this way of handling many-to-many relationships seems like something that is used commonly in web forms. The values are sent to the controller as an array and are easy to handle after that.

Started a new Conversation One To Many Relation In Forms (without JavaScript)

I have a form for adding address to a user. One user can have anything from zero to dozens of addresses (one to many relationship in database).

Is there a simple way to create a form in Laravel that allows the user to add or delete address fileds without writing custom JavaScript code that handles add/delete buttons?

It should look something like this:

Started a new Conversation Migrations - Adding Columns With FALSE As Default Value

I'm using a migration that adds "verified" column to users table:


use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

class AddVerifiedColumn extends Migration
     * Run the migrations.
     * @return void
    public function up()
        Schema::table('users', function (Blueprint $table) {            

     * Reverse the migrations.
     * @return void
    public function down()
        Schema::table('users', function (Blueprint $table) {

The goal is to add "verified" column and set it to false for all current users and future registered users.

When I try to run php artisan migrate, I get the following error:

SQLSTATE[23502]: Not null violation: 7 ERROR:  column "verified" contains null values (SQL: alter table "users" add column "verified" boolean not null)

Why does it contain null values? It should contain boolean value: false.

EDIT: database is postgreSQL

Replied to Prevent Unverified Users From Logging In (Laravel 6.x)

Is there an example of this? I'm having trouble implementing this. I never used middleware.

I'm using default login controller:


namespace App\Http\Controllers\Auth;

use App\Http\Controllers\Controller;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\AuthenticatesUsers;

class LoginController extends Controller
    | Login Controller
    | This controller handles authenticating users for the application and
    | redirecting them to your home screen. The controller uses a trait
    | to conveniently provide its functionality to your applications.

    use AuthenticatesUsers;

     * Where to redirect users after login.
     * @var string
    protected $redirectTo = '/map';

     * Create a new controller instance.
     * @return void
    public function __construct()

I just want to check inside controller if user is verified before I allow them to login.

Started a new Conversation Prevent Unverified Users From Logging In (Laravel 6.x)

I added "verified" column (boolean) to users table. I'm planning to manually verify users in database. I don't want email verification.

Now I need to prevent unverified users from logging into my app. What is the best way to do this? I' using default laravel login window and I only need to display the message: "Your account is not verified" if they try logging in before verification.

Started a new Conversation Multiple Custom .js Files

I have some custom .js code that I load into my view (bottom of body tag) like this:

<!-- Compiled JS from libraries -->
<script src="{{ asset('js/app.js')}}"></script>

<!-- Custom JS  -->
<script src="{{ asset('js/guestapp.js')}}"></script>
  <script src="{{ asset('js/adminapp.js')}}"></script>

adminapp.js is loaded only for authenticated users.

Some code in adminapp.js is dependent on code in guestapp.js. Are these scripts executed synchronously? The application will bug if adminapp.js runs before guestapp.js is finished.

Started a new Conversation Limiting Number Of Characters In Blade View (laravel 6.x)

I have paragraph element in my blade template:

<p class="card-text">{{ $location->description }}</p>

Is there a way to limit number of characters, because the text in $location->description variable is sometimes too long and it messes with my layout.

I need something like this ( but to use it in blade template instead of controller.

Started a new Conversation 401 Unauthorized POST Request With JQuery

I'm using jQuery script in one of my views to send POST request to my API route in Laravel 6:

The request looks like this:

            type: 'POST',
            headers: {'X-CSRF-TOKEN': $('meta[name="csrf-token"]').attr('content')},
            url: 'api/location',            
            data: {
                'opis': opis,
                'geom': geometry
            success: function(msg){

The route is registered in routes/api.php:

Route::resource('location', 'LocationController');

I'm getting the following response in my developer tools network section:


Headers section looks like this:

What is the problem? I'm sending csrf token in request header. Is there something else I shoud do/configure?

Started a new Conversation Using JavaScript Libraries In Laravel View Components (6.x)

I'm trying to add leaflet.js map to my laravel project.

Leaflet is installed via

npm install leaflet

After that, I used this to compile assets:

npm run dev

I have a view (map.blade.php) in which I'm trying to use leaflet like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Quick Start - Leaflet</title>

    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">

<div id="mapid" style="width: 600px; height: 400px;"></div>


    var mymap ='mapid').setView([51.505, -0.09], 13);

    L.tileLayer('{id}/{z}/{x}/{y}.png?access_token=pk.eyJ1IjoibWFwYm94IiwiYSI6ImNpejY4NXVycTA2emYycXBndHRqcmZ3N3gifQ.rJcFIG214AriISLbB6B5aw', {

            'Imagery © <a href="">Mapbox</a>',
        id: 'mapbox.streets'

    L.marker([51.5, -0.09]).addTo(mymap)
        .bindPopup("<b>Hello world!</b><br />I am a popup.").openPopup();[51.508, -0.11], 500, {
        color: 'red',
        fillColor: '#f03',
        fillOpacity: 0.5
    }).addTo(mymap).bindPopup("I am a circle.");

        [51.509, -0.08],
        [51.503, -0.06],
        [51.51, -0.047]
    ]).addTo(mymap).bindPopup("I am a polygon.");

    var popup = L.popup();

    function onMapClick(e) {
            .setContent("You clicked the map at " + e.latlng.toString())

    mymap.on('click', onMapClick);



I'm getting the following error: Uncaught ReferenceError: L is not defined at map:25

Now, I understand that this is because leaflet library is not loaded properly, but I don't know what is the best way to load it so I can use it in this view?
